Bruins defenseman Seidenberg out for season

Boston Bruins defenseman Dennis Seidenberg will miss the rest of season with torn ligaments in his right knee, the team annouced Saturday.

Seidenberg injured his ACL and MCL in the third period Friday against the Ottawa Senators in an awkward fall.

Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli said the team has recalled defenseman Zach Trotman from Providence of the American Hockey League on an emergency basis and assigned goaltender Niklas Svedberg to Providence. Trotman will join the team in Ottawa on Saturday and is eligible to play.

The Bruins said Seidenberg is expected to need 6-8 months to recover.

Seidenberg, 32, had one goal and nine assists in 34 games this season. He is second on the Bruins in time on ice at 21:50 per game, behind the 25:02 of Zdeno Chara.

Quote of the Day

When we started our journey we made a commitment to our fans to be relevant and to see the Chicago Blackhawks become the best professional hockey organization. There are not two finer symbols of that than Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. The commitment we have made to these incredible young men is equal to the commitment they have made to our team, our fans, our entire organization and the city of Chicago.
